Fun & Frugal Bedtime Tents for Children (Frugal Friday)

The following is a guest post from Tammy  –
When it comes to kids’ playthings, I love stuff that encourages creativity. Multi-purpose and frugal is an added bonus!
My four children (ages 7 and under) love making tents. (And with our rainy Seattle weather, there’s a lot of indoor playtime!)
I went to our local GoodWill store and found a Spiderman flat bedsheet for my 5 year old boy, and a Dora sheet for my 3 year old girl. For just a couple dollars, they have a colorful way to create tents in the living room or their bedroom.
The Spiderman sheet has even been used on the Rhododendron bushes in the front yard on a sunny day. Sheets are washable and since I bought them to be played with, I’m pretty lenient about how they get used!
At night time, we make tents with their beds — a bottom bunk bed and a crib. They have had so much fun with these sheets. When not in use, the sheets fold up small, and can even be used, of course, as a bed sheet in the future.
